Subglottic granuloma after aortic replacement: resection via flexible bronchoscopy after an emergency tracheostomy.

Nose N, So T, Sekimura A, Miyata T, Yoshimatsu T - J Surg Case Rep (2014)

Bottom Line: On POD 50, he was brought to our hospital by an ambulance with severe dyspnea.After an emergency tracheostomy, resection of the granuloma with argon plasma coagulation via flexible bronchoscopy was performed safely.Resection via flexible bronchoscopy after tracheostomy is a safe and feasible procedure that may shorten the duration of therapy and hospital stay.

RJU088F1: Computed tomography revealed a mass arising from the posterior wall of the trachea (arrow).

Mentions: Upon arrival, he complained of severe dyspnea with inspiratory stridor in his throat. Computed tomography revealed a mass arising from the posterior wall of the trachea (Fig. 1). Bronchoscopy revealed a white subglottic tumor occupying 80% of the tracheal diameter (Fig. 2). We performed an emergency tracheostomy under topical anesthesia, and the symptoms improved dramatically. For 5 days after the tracheostomy, hydrocortisone was prescribed; however, no tendency toward reduction of the mass could be identified during follow-up bronchoscopy. To shorten the treatment period, we performed a resection of the tumor under bronchoscopy 6 days after the tracheostomy.Figure 1:
